Gig: Malcolm Holcombe – The Met, Bury – 26 Sep 2012
Posted on: Sunday, Sep 23, 2012
Renowned country-folk-blues singer-songwriter-guitarist Malcolm Holcombe announces UK & Irish dates for September & October in support of his new album Down The River.
Only one date in the northwest though
“..stripped-down Americana at its best… Like all great storytellers he knows how to wring every ounce of emotion from his material” Acoustic
“Listen to a Holcombe song and what you’re getting is personality in spades,
a narrative so gritty with the noise of tough living that it rarely dips below the red on the authenticity meter.” BBC Music
“Comparing Malcolm Holcombe with the likes of John Prine, Chris Smither, JJ Cale, Levon Helm or even Tom Waits is entirely justifiable.
As a performing artist and songwriter, Malcolm Holcombe is an authentic country-blues bard.” Irish Examiner
“If you look in the dictionary under authentic Americana, the first thing you’ll see is Malcolm Holcombe’s name.
His inner strength shines through the songs, which have a redemptive power and the feel and emotional punch that money can’t buy. A mighty album” R2
